This weekend my daughter, Kelly, came for an”almost” surprise visit with her two step-brothers. So, yesterday we were having a ‘girls’ day complete with pedicure and she asked if she could take me for lunch. Yes, please, I’m starving!
We walked into Auntie Ag’s Seafood Café and had the most delicious lunch. We both had the 1 piece halibut with fries and coleslaw. The batter on the fish is absolutely spot on. No heavy, not greasy and the portion size (for us, anyway) was absolutely perfect. Believe me, it was fast out of the kitchen, hot as can be and ever so tasty. Kelly and I had a glass of the grape and thoroughly enjoyed it.
We had a great server, Dustin, who was brand new at this profession (helping his uncle through the summer) having just graduated University with a Teacher’s Degree and was looking forward to finding employment in Alberta. We wish him well.
The restaurant is, of course, very British in design…it looks like (and feels) like you are in your own dining room. A little fireplace/mantle on one wall, with memorabilia of the Royal Family on the walls and truly a super clean, wonderful little secret here in Oliver. On each table there are interesting facts to read about. One page has the history of Oliver dating way back, another showing many questions asked about the food being served, little menu cards about the liquor they have on hand.
When your meal is presented to the table, each plate has a little Union Jack on the fish. Loved it! Quaint, quirky and so, so worth it.
It had been awhile since we had been here but will not take so long in returning.
